Toby Keith Honors Chattanooga Shooting Victim and His Family [Watch]
Toby Keith has always been loud in his support of the U.S. military, and he proved it once again during a tour stop in Atlanta, where he honored the family of Lance Cpl. Squire K. "Skip" Wells, a soldier who lost his life during the shooting at a Navy Reserve Center in Chattanooga last month.
The Big Dog Daddy brought Wells' mother on stage to receive the recognition and support she deserves.
"You heard in the last week or so ago about the terrible tragedy that happened up in Tennessee, and all the marines and people that lost their lives," Keith told a screaming, supportive crowd. "Well this young lady right here is the mother of Lt. Cpl. Skip Wells. I want you guys to know how difficult it is to even speak to her. We say we understand, but guess what? We kinda f---ing don't. That's her son and he is a great American Warrior."
Also on stage were several other members of the military, who Keith also honored.
"I got a bunch of warriors on stage here tonight, and we're gonna do a song that represents all that," Keith continued before leading the crowd in a heartwarming rendition of his hit "Courtesy of the Red White and Blue."
The country star is one of several country singer who have paid tribute to victims of recent tragedies in our country lately. Kelsea Ballerini also paid tribute to Chattanooga victims by dedicating "Amazing Grace" during her performance on the Fox and Friends show. Brantley Gilbert has as well, offering to play a benefit show in the community that has been so shaken up from the shooting.
Toby Keith will release a new album, 35 MPH Town, in October.
